viva el Papa Francisco!


Papa Francisco I
first Pope from the Americas, ergo
first Latino Pope
first Jesuit
first to call on and take the name of Francis of Assisi,
the great reformer of the Church!

+     +     +     +     +

"And now let us begin this journey, the Bishop and people, this journey of the Church of Rome which presides in charity over all the Churches, a journey of brotherhood in love, of mutual trust. Let us always pray for one another. Let us pray for the whole world that there might be a great sense of brotherhood ."
